10 Jul Why we love to BOX!
Here at ZCF we love boxing not just because it is a fun workout for our babes but it also challenges us both mentally and physically. Both helping to strengthen and tone those muscles but is a kick ass stress release and helps burn HEAPS of calories!
Here are our top five favourite reasons we love smashing the pads!
1. Fat burning:
Did you know you could burn over 500 calories per boxing session? And thanks to boxing being high intensity training, you won’t just burn heaps of calories during the session but also for hours after the session has ended. Typical cardio does not have this post training calorie burning effect – which is why we love boxing for weight loss.
2. Increased muscle tone:
Typical boxers physique is toned and defined without a lot of bulk which is why it is perfect for toning up – pair a few boxing sessions a week with some ZCF booty blasters and you will have that toned physique and peach booty in no time.
3. Stress Relief:
Boxing isn’t just a fantastic physical activity but it has psychological benefits too. Hitting stuff can make you feel SO GOOD! And it will leave you calm, relaxed and ready to take on anything.
4. Build strong bones and ligaments:
Resistance training strengthens your bones. In boxing, focus pads and punching bags provide resistance, as does your own body weight when you perform push-ups, pull-ups, lunges and burpees. Your joints, tendons and ligaments will also get stronger in response to working against resistance.
5. Increased cardiovascular fitness:
Boxing is a full body workout, making your heart and lungs work overtime to pump blood-containing oxygen all around your body. Boxing will test your cardiovascular system to the max, forcing your body to adapt meaning you can train at a higher intensity, giving an even better fat burning effect.
